When heated discussions or flame wars break out, you can lock conversations on issues, pull requests, and commits permanently or until cooler heads prevail.
It's appropriate to lock a conversation when the entire conversation is not constructive or violates your community's code of conduct.
While a conversation is locked, only people with collaborator permissions can add comments.
- Optionally, write a comment explaining why you're locking the conversation.
- In the right margin of the issue or pull request, click Lock issue or Lock pull request.
- Read the information about locking conversations and click Lock this issue or Lock this pull request.
- When you're ready to unlock the conversation, click Unlock issue or Unlock pull request.
